About Us

FOUNDED DECEMBER 2020

Our Tallahassee is a new multi-platform media outlet providing today’s breaking news on government, politics, justice and commentary in Tallahassee and the North Florida region.

Our city is covered by a number of outlets – newspaper, radio, TV and internet. But in these days of media conglomerations and skin-tight news budgets, we know there is room for another voice – especially in this era of nontraditional platforms.

We’re adding a progressive perspective to Tallahassee news that understands that some voices in this city have historically been ignored or stifled. They have been drowned out by the voices of the powerful: the influence of Tallahassee’s old families and untoward business interests. We also know that hard-working volunteers and community activists have already begun to shift the balance in this city.

In recent years, the voices historically drowned out have been speaking up, organizing, and winning elections. Our Tallahassee is dedicated to helping lift up the voices of those who have not been heard, or heard but ignored for far too long.

Together, we’re going to build Our Tallahassee

And we’re going to change our city forever.
